Winnipeg City Councillor Thomas Steen spent Friday night in jail on new domestic violence charges.

Steen was arrested and charged with failure to comply with a no-contact order.

The order was issued after he was charged with assault and uttering threats in connection with an incident with a woman at a Winnipeg restaurant in May.

Court documents allege Steen violated that no-contact order in late June.

Steen appeared before a justice of the peace on Saturday and was released after paying a $1,500 bond.

Steen is scheduled to appear in court in August to face his original assault charges.

CBC has requested comment from Steen, but he has not yet responded.
